Click: http://erickamen.com/ "The Lost Tribe" music video, produced and directed by Pola Rapaport and shot by DP Wolfgang Held, is a fresh take and spin on Spanish flamenco music. Shot in a dance studio, four young women take to the rehearsal space auditioning and interpret “The Lost Tribe” with a variety of contemporary hip-hop, urban, and pop dance passages which gracefully mirror Kamen’s precise guitar playing. Original improvisations are by dancers Holly Googe, Pearrie Hammie, Shakiver Gordon and Cecile Klaus.
Things defying gravity and floating away into the sky, people flying and unimaginable objects gliding around have all fascinated us forever. Our television and films have routinely offered us computer-generated treats that seem astonishingly real. While theatre and Live entertainment slowly regains our attention, There is a need to have this same magic of flight recreated on stage. Live. There’s a need to have dancers perform in thin air, of cars ‘driving’ up the sides of buildings, of a superstar ‘flying’ onto the stage in front of our very eyes. And there is a crying need for doing all this with utmost safety.
